• Hey - gimme that arm! 



Step 9 




• Animatronics: Separate servos to control the eye and eye brow movement. Three LED 
light sources for the eyes and the antena. Examples of "Please don't use that magnet" and 
"Watch out meatbags"

Step 10 




• Life has been tough. ..the original 
finish was too smooth and was not 
consistent with Bender's life style. 
So I covered the entire thing with 
spackle, pitted it with a broom and 
then flexed the entire construct to 
create cracks. 



Step 11 




• Assorted swag
